As parents, our children are the most important people in our lives. We do our best to raise them with good values and to teach them kindness, generosity, respect for others and the importance of education. With today’s technology developing so rapidly, it’s important that children have a good understanding of it.

Being able to understand things like coding, programming and robotics at a basic level may end up giving our children an immense advantage as they progress through life. But how can we teach children these things when many of us parents don’t understand them?

Wonder Workshop offers a fun, fast and easy way! Dash and Dot are two revolutionary new robots that help kids learn the basics of programming and problem solving in a simple, hands-on way. With the holidays approaching, I think these robots are a wonderful gift idea for kids aged 5 and up. Keep reading to find out why.

Kids can really learn coding, programming and robotics?

There’s no question that the minds of children are comparable to sponges. They soak up information so quickly that some might say it’s dangerous. Just like that bad word daddy said when he accidentally hammered his thumb; kids are capable of learning other languages as well. Because coding and programming can help children better understand how certain things work, I think Dash and Dot will be a huge hit with families focused on giving their children an educational edge.

That’s exactly what these robots will do, but it’s highly unlikely that children will even realize it because they’ll be having too much fun! Who knew you could turn programming and coding into play? Not only is this a great way to give your kids an imagination boost, but it’s great for building confidence, too!
